Whether you are new to cannabis or have been using it for a while, you may want to experiment with edibles and find new delicious treats to mask the flavor of cannabis. These days, cannabis lovers have more options than just brownies and candies. Choosing foods and drinks that pair well with cannabis takes your experience with edibles to the next level. These foods include the following:
Mango is one of the best foods you can pair with cannabis edibles because it contains compounds called myrcene terpenes, known for promoting pain relief, relaxation, and better sleep. These compounds work with the THC cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive effects of weed. They bind with the THC brain receptors, letting your high come on faster and stronger, as well as last longer.
Caramels and Chocolates
Some cannabis concentrates have overwhelming flavors that can be balanced out by the bitterness and complexity of chocolate. Chocolate tends to blend well with cannabis and you can further disguise the flavor by adding texture such as fruits and nuts. This is the main reason brownies are a classic type of edibles.
In addition, rosemary and creamy caramels can also mask the flavor of cannabis. You can make caramel sauce with canna-butter or cannabis-infused butter.
There are many ways you can enjoy this refreshing pairing. Tea contains lots of healthy components such as vitamin E and antioxidants. One of these antioxidants is called catechins that bind to CB1 receptors in the bran to offer calming effects. When combined with the relaxing effects of cannabis, the pairing gives you a match made in heaven.
Sweet potatoes are abundant in healthy components like Vitamin E and B vitamins. They help boost the production of serotonin in the brain, which works well with the mood-boosting effects of marijuana. Also, sweet potatoes help boost your cognitive function and can provide you with an extra burst of mental energy and concentration.
Berries or Grapes
A lot of cannabis strains have the same terpenes you would find in berries and grapes. By using them together, you can get the most of their benefits to health and improve your cannabis experience. Berries are grapes are known for their abundance in vitamins and antioxidants. And you can easily snack on a bowl of these fruits while you are getting high. Strains such as Lemon Sorbet, Banana Split, and Lime Pie pair well with fruits and will provide you with a sensational high.
